    This drop-in program is about how to build weather vanes and anemometers (those things that spin to measure wind speed) from recycled materials. Kids will get a hands-on lesson on weather, the design process, data collection, and analysis. Attendees will build their own tools to take home so that they can collect and analyze data over the next week.

    The program is led by older Girl Scouts sharing some knowledge they've learned with the community as part of their Take Action Project.
